I surfed Fri/Sat/Sun - Easily 12 ft. faces here in San Diego. I'm 6'4 and sets on Saturday were "double overhead", easily.
I was trying to be conservative by saying 8-10 ft. so no one would question me!
Either way, no matter how big it was, this guy passed pretty close to the surfers at a high rate of speed. The lifeguards weren't too happy with him (a friend was on duty that day). He was heavily intoxicated - it could have been bad.
